Had a very enjoyable 5 nights at Sirkeci Konak. It's hard to fault - good location, clean attractive rooms & helpful staff - but I guess after reading a string of glowing reviews, I was perhaps hoping for a little more of a "wow factor". It met my basic expectations in terms of a well run 3-4 star city hotel.
Room (a standard) at the rear of the hotel was quiet and clean, but reasonably small with no view to speak of. Good water pressure. Wi-fi was free and reliable. Public spaces are nice, but reasonably generic. The rooftop terrace would be very pleasant in warmer weather.
Breakfast buffet was decent without being fantastic. The restaurant entrance also doubles as the servery area, making it quite congested at times. Had one dinner (complimentary) at the restauarant, which again, was good without being memorable.
Took advantage of the offers promoted when booking direct through the hotel web site - 11% cash discount; free dinner; free transfer (when staying 3 nights or more) which helped improve the value.
Staff were really nice and always helpful.
